samanu (‘with mantra’)

‘Manu’ means a mantra (holy syllable). Works on Haṭhayoga describe various processes of prāṇāyāma for nāḍīśuddhi (purification of the tubular structures through which prāṇic energy flows). Very often, certain bījamantras (seed-letters) like yam, ram and ṭham, are associated with the different stages of these prāṇāyāmas. Hence they are called ‘samanu’ (prāṇāyāmas with bijamantras) (ivide Gheranda Samhitā 5.36-45).

The actual processes have to be learnt personally from expert teachers.
